3.4/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

My in-laws got this for me directly from England. The bottle was a full pint with chunky floaties and a consume-by date of February 6, 2006. I let the floaties settle and did not poor them into my pint glass. The color is an orangy-amber with a thin white head, very nice looking. I could not get much from the nose, even as it warmed up. While cold, all I could smell was a buttery-ness. While warm, the alcohol was prevalent.

My first taste was interesting, a the beer was little tart, but not acidic tart, almost like a sharp eggplant. However, I paired this with beef stroganoff, and the sour cream in the sauce cut the sharpness of the beer. It became more typical of a pale ale as I know them, mild hoppiness with nice malt base. As the beer warmed, I started recognizing the source of the "tart" flavor--it was the alcohol itself. It clearly came through as a tangy vodka martini flavor, complete with a little dry vermouth and an olive! Crazy! Not a flavor I normally associate, or even like, with beer. The tangy zip went great with the sweet and tangy sundried tomato vinagrette on my salad and the stroganoff over egg noodles. It was easy enough to toss back, despite the strong presence of alcohol toward the end.

Overall, this beer was interesting. It was similar enough to other beers not to be outstanding, but different enough to make me think twice about what I was drinking. The vodka olive flavor was unexpected, but kind of grew on me. Nevertheless, I doubt I could, or would, drink more than one of these in a session.

3.58/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Ripe pumpkin orange with butterscotch edges; easily seen by looking through the clear glass bottle shown at right. The large, orangish ivory crown is tight-bubbled and is clingingly sticky. I like the color quite a bit and the head is one of the best on an English pale ale that I've seen in ages.

Amazingly, there's no trace of skunk. This bottle must have been especially well cared for. The nose consists of lightly sweet, lightly toasted grain and an equal measure of musky, earthy hops. There may be a little orange fruit as well. It doesn't smell like the more common English hop varieties have been used, but it still smells unaccountably English. Go figure.

If you like your EPAs on the malty-sweet rather than the hoppy-bitter side, then Hen's Tooth should be right up your alley. Since I prefer the latter, I'm not warming up to it all that much. The flavor profile isn't very deep. Actually, the beer tastes somewhat dumbed down to me. I keep sipping, hoping to find some nuance, but what you taste is pretty much what you get.

That isn't to say Hen's Tooth is bad, just that it isn't especially interesting. I find myself longing for a little of that classic English pale ale bottom-of-the-teacup, tea leafy bitterness. The soft, subdued, yet still effective, carbonation matches up well with the medium body and with the lightly mouthcoating finish. A cask feel from a bottle, in other words.

This beer isn't my preferred sort of EPA, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have some positives or that it won't appeal to a wide range of people. In the official pecking order of English pale ales (according to me), Hen's Tooth is at least as much pecker as it is peckee. In trying to decide if it was a worthwhile purchase, I spot the sticker that reads '$3.99'. If I had it to do over again, at that price, I'd pass.

4/5  rDev +16.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

50 CL clear glass bottle carefully selected from back of the cooler at the Green Jug.

Pours a clear darker copper colored ale with a good tan head.

Smell is sweet and fruity with a fairly strong scent of herbal hops. Fruity scent is the standard British ale smell that I can best describe as juicy fruit. Spicy scent of alcohol and a secondary sweet vanilla scent. Absolutely no funk or skunk in this bottle.

Taste is sweet and herbal at the very start. Strong herbal hop level here and I like it. Fairly fruity with the standard British ale yeast flavor. Sweetness here has several levels, toffee, honey, malt, butterscotch, and caramel. Earth flavor play a part here too, wood and leather are the major ones.

Mouthfeel is good.

Quite a tasty pleasant ale here but only if you get a properly treated bottle. I REALLY wish British brewers would just give up on clear glass, it doesn't protect the beer at all. A tasty satisfying ale that I liked a lot. Be absolutely sure you get a good bottle because this one will not tolerate shoddy treatment at all.

Paid 2.99 for a fancy bottle complete with attached cardboard info card!

Pretty bottle, pretty beer. Rusty orange color, little head. Smell is somewhat winey, medicinal. Taste is also a bit winey and overall mellow. Some fruit in there too, but that my be from the winey taste? Small carbonation and little fizz with this beer.

Maybe not the best notes above, but this isn't a bad session beer - if only you could afford it.

4.1/5  rDev +19.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a Bright rich golden amber with a tannish foamy head on top. This beer requires you to pour slowly as there is yeast sediment on bottom.

Smell: I noticed the aromas almost instantly upon opening this bottle. Very grainy and bitter its actually quite nice.

Taste: The first thing I noticed was toasted malts then a pleasant dtrness with hints of fruit. I noted a lot of flavors in this bootle through out it probably due to the rawness and yeast. Very tasty and nice though.

Mouthfeel: Very dry and smooth it goes down quite easy and quenches your thirst.

Drinkability: Great! Again it goes down very smooth and tasty. Its as real as ale gets when bottled.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint tumbler with a 2" white-tan head and a transparent medium brown color. Pretty impressive head retention, still a 1/8" head minutes later.

Not a whole lot going on in the nose, some light toasty malt. Maybe a gentle waft of earthy hops here and there. The simplicity continues in the taste. Medium bodied, pretty rich for a pale ale, the mouthfeel is well carbonated and a bit on the dry side, not too bad though. Almost a full malt taste, but not all the way there.. This is an otherwise straight-forward pale ale.. it's like the Marlboro Medium of English Pale Ales. [a decent price for a decent pale ale]

4.47/5  rDev +30.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle fermented. The colour is medium dark amber; the finger thick beige foam dissolves into a thing lid rather quick. Looks nice to me!

The smell is quite delicate; lots and lots of aroma hops, chocolate chip brownies (!), and a sour - metallic touch.

The carbonation is soft, mellow and very pleasant, perfectly for this style.

The taste is full of full-bodied, somewhat sweet malt; there are notes of diacetyl (toffee), Ceylon tea, salt gravy, chocolate-toffee and sweet dough. The finish got subtle notes of sour yeast and dry hops.

I really liked this ale, and I found it very enjoyable although the label text, which goes something like ”the closest thing to a real ale that you can get in a bottle”, isn’t really true. I will get back to this one!

16.9 ounce clear bottle, with no freshness dating. the pour immediatly tells me I've got a problem on my hands, A huge head develops, tons of bubbles continue to rise from the bottom. Uh oh, beer gone bad, nose is soapy, mouthfeel is prickly, flavors are off and winey, nah, I've experienced enuf, was it the clear bottle? , was it on the shelf for too long? Anyway bad beer is not for me, down the drain it goes

2.1/5  rDev -38.8%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Presentation: Rather cool looking 500ml clear glass bottle, wide body with a tall thin neck which has the Morland artist embossed in 4 places on the neck and the words “Morland Established 1711” in raised lettering around the base….seems they didn’t have room to add “and closed by Green King in 1999”. A logo crown cap and a red & black bordered cream colored label both have a quality look to them. Labeled as “Hen’s Tooth” [the name is supposed to indicate its rarity] and as a “Bottle-Conditioned English Ale”. All of this is finished off with a small folded cardboard tag which is the same color as the main label and is held in place around the neck with red string (red is often associated with royal documents, seals, paper, etc.) and also adds a rather high end look to this brew. Listed at 6.5%, but with No Best Before Date that I could find. Cost $2.99 so it wasn’t too expensive, which was surprising give its obvious wish to impress the quality beer punter.

So it’s obvious which sector of the market this brew is aimed at, namely the Fullers and Young’s brews with similar excellent packaging, but I wonder how it will stand up to the tougher London Boys……?!?

Appearance: Beautiful lacing on the glass sides from the light tan head which phases between dirty white and a creamy vanilla yellow depending on the angle of the incandescent light. Scrumptious ruddy body that is clear, despite the thick layer of yeast visible on the bottom of the bottle, which remained undisturbed by the single pour. Head retention is superb and the conditioning is excellent too. A good start then…?...

Nose: ….erm maybe not!! Funky Malts and a whiff of dirty unemptied Teapots laden with cold tea from days gone by. Remember Farley’s Rusk’s?, maybe not if you’re not English, well I get those too.

Taste: From the first sip it’s a let down. Sharp tastes, angular profile, disjointed components that are ill-fitting. The English malts and hops are there, but it’s all wrong. A weird buttery cum fatty bacon taste intertwines with a tannin laden cold tea middle. Finish has some rescuing malts which exhibit a rather dry and strange tealeaf acidity, the hops maybe? I just don’t get this at all. Seems to have the right ingredients, but they are all in the wrong place. A Salvador Dali English Pale Ale if you will.

Mouthfeel: Weak, I hate to repeat myself but I get cold Tea again, and it’s not good, and I like cold Tea.

Drinkability: I worked my through this one…for one reason and one reason only, I don’t think that it is bad, or even “off”, neither is it repulsive…but it is a real surprise, extremely harsh, sharp, acidic and spiky….this is one cheese grater of a brew…..and this makes it very hard to enjoy.

Overall: Great start with the presentation and appearance in the glass, but it’s all down hill from there. Shockingly disappointing…..what happened guys???

I am most certainly not one of the US knee-jerk “it’s clear glass therefore skunked” brigade, this sample clearly isn’t, but I’m wondering if I had an old bottle…yet I KNOW where I bought it from is an exceptionally reputable store, I get all my Samuel Smiths from there too, and I have never had a problem with any of those – so no, definitely not skunked…..though with no discernable freshness date I do wonder if it’s just old…..of course, it could just be utter crap….after all, we are talking Greene King…but wait they do Olde Suffolk which is OK….ahhh fuck it, who knows…..I’m so confused…..I’ll give it a whirl again one day, but maybe whilst back in England…not here in the US.

Best before 29.12.05...

Appearance: light brown with red highlights, medium layer of off-white foram that dissipates a bit too quickly to a sparse skin with a flotilla of bubbles in the center

Aroma: confectionary malt sweetness, hint of ripe pear, faint floral hops, melon, and surprisingly no skunkiness

Flavor: slight initial sweetness, full malty flavor, quick balance of roast and hop bitterness, faint taste of roots and wood, finishes semi-dry with a somewhat vegetal hop flavor in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: medium body, gentle carbonation, soft texture slight alcohol warmth

Other comments: I was quite surprised at the fact that there wasn't even a hint of skunkiness. Not sure how they accomplished that. This was a clear bottle taken from a supermarket shelf!

Really a pretty big dissapointment. It's a really nice, orange color, with bubbles set up in just the right way.

The smell however, is something special. I'm not even quite sure how to describe it. Other reviews here have called it "yeasty rotting apple," and that probably sums it up as well as anything I can think of. It really must be smelled to be believed.

It claims to be a traditional English Pale Ale, but it's not like any I've ever had. An all pervasive corn husk flavor, common in some macro beers but foreign to most English Ales shows itself here.

Harsh and sharp, all the way down. Lousiest mouthfeel in recent memory.

Can't recommend this one. Best avoided.

02/16/05- Purchased at Mollie Stones in San Mateo, CA

Presentation- 16.9oz bottle poured into my 20oz Radeberger pils glass. Coed of L04-204 on the back.

Appearance- Great looking glass bottle. Pours an amber color with average foamy head and light lacing. Lots of yeasties floating in my glass.

Smell- Not really skunky, but a really bittersweet malt scent.

Taste- Good sweet malt character with just the right amount of bitter ESB type hop flavor. Right at the borderline for me. Quite tasty one. Grapefruity, but not like an IPA grapefruity, if that makes any sense.

Mouthfeel- Low to medium carbonation and a bitter dry mouthfeel.

Drinkability- One would be perfect for me considering it's bitterness, but that one is pretty refreshing. Would like to have this one on tap in the UK. A bit pricey though. I think I paid $3.49. Drop this one a buck and I may pick up a few more for the DBF.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear medium-dark orange with a huge head of large bubbles that collapse quickly.

The aroma comes through strong, malty, aromatic, something slightly off (or is it the allergies?).

Flavor is ok- malty for sure, a hint of toasty/caramel-type flavors, with a slight hop finish. Generally mild all the way round. Note that I had this on tap recently, and that version was thin/watery in both flavor and mouthfeel- out of the bottle it's better both in flavor and mouthfeel.

Pours a clear burnt orange color with a creamy off white head. Good retention and sparse lacing.
Smells of sweet earthy malt, mild fruit, a bit of caramel and a grassy hop aroma.
Taste nails the aroma. Bittersweet, rich and slightly earthy. Good balance of malt/hops.
Light bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and a good level of carbonation.
Certainly not as rare as a "Hens Tooth" as the bottle claims. Actually more of a by the numbers English Pale Ale.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured a rich amber brown ale with a nice white head that subsided slowly to a thin ring. The aroma reminded me of cheap vodka blended with ale like aromas. A bit of dry malt and some fruity esters blend with a strange alcoholic scent. The taste is a very dry and malty brew with some fruity hops thrown in to give complexity. Kind of weak in the hop flavor department this brew leaves a little to be desired overall but the yeast flavors seem to be the only point of realt intreset as the fruityiness really comes out due to the lack of other flavors to compete. Body is about perfect for an ale though as the carbonaiton is present and continues to replenish the head without lending any carbonic bite. Very smooth and refreshing this could be a very nice session beer.

I was apprehensive when first trying Hen's Tooth. I wasn't quite sure what to expect.

When I first opened the bottle, the smell was rather intense, but not offputing. As I poured the beer, it had a very pleasing appearance in color and the aroma actually grew on me and became rather pleasing.

The taste is very good. It is clean and does not leave a bad aftertaste at all. Overall, a good beer that I will buy again.

this poured a hazy copper, lots of bubbles, the head was as if on steroids! even though I had the glass tilted properly it still foamed up incredibly, big frothy head, that held all the way through.
smell was of sweet grain
tasted like a mild belgian pale ale or wittbier, quite nice actually.
mouthfeel was bubbly with a bit of a dry chewy finish.
drinkability I would say is good! nothing wrong with this beer! worth a try.

Sampled from a clear bottle, 500 ml, lovingly brought across the pond by LondonPorter.

Bottle conditioned, strong ale, 6.5% ABV. Pours a real clear, copper color with a massive pillowy white head. Had to wait a minute or so for the head to subside before pouring the remainder into my imperial pint glass. Head eventually fades to a 1/2 inch thick, creamy pancake that lasts till the end.

On the nose, dry grass, herbs and musty wood. Taste is initially flinty and herbal followed by some nice bready/doughy notes, yeast, and a bit of that British fruity yeast esters. Very lightly toasted pale malts make themselves known towards the end along with a medicinal sour twang and lots of tea like flavors. Different, but nice. Reminds me a little of Old Speckled Hen's medicinal character. Finished dry and bitter, somewhat sharp with loads of herbs. Mouthfeel was really nice, creamy and full. Carbonation was low and tight,

Overall - A rather uniquely flavored ale. Very drinkable and complex. Thanks Simon for bringing me this!

Boastfully bottle-condtioned. Lot L-04-77.

Clear reddish amber with briefly ample white head.

Incredibly nasty sweet-sour fermenting hay scent. Oh man, I'm getting a bad feeling about this one.

First sip. Ugh. Let's try again. Maple syrup malt overwhelmed by sourness. Has this gone bad? Bearable resiny finish that slowly peeps out as if to say, 'It's okay, there's some actual beerlike qualities in this.'

Reasonable prickle on the tongue.

Drinkable? No. I wish this was rare as a hen's tooth.

As a rule, I shy away from clear bottles due to the skunk factor. A whif of skunk as I gently poured added to my fear, yet I marched on and I'm glad I did.

The color is a reddish-golden with a slight head. The first taste was caramel, then went a little bitter and finished with almost a butterscotch finale. I love this stuff!

Little did I know what a nice surprise I would find later as I licked my lips and got a wonderful sweet taste from the dried beer which lingered there! I'll definately drink this again and appreciate the 6.5% alcohol.

It pours a dark orange with some brown and is mostly clear, though there is a slight haze. The light tan head is a good size. The aroma is malty, fruity, and hoppy. The smell of the english hops is very nice. It has a fruity maltiness and some sweetness and woody notes. It finishes with a nice dry bitterness (Fuggles and EKG?). It is a great bottled beer that could almost pass for a cask ale.

Stopped by one of my favorite (because of the good, varying beer selection) supermarkets yesterday and found them unloading a case of this beer. I immediately grabbed a bottle. Tall and clear, the bottle sports a white and red label promoting the fact that the brew is bottle conditioned and strong. Sure enough, there's plenty of sendiment here. Ingredients conform to the purity law. Best before 10/20/04, I opened it on 4/2/04.

Poured a clear (I kept the sediment in the bottle on the initial pour) dark copper verging on red under a one finger light tan head that settles to film fairly quickly. On the secondary pour, the liquid become slightly cloudy. The nose features sweet malt and yeast, with a touch of cherry. The mouth is very well carbonated and medium-bodied. The opening is nice and smooth, with lots of yeast and a hint of cherry. This is followed by an ample portion of typically British hops. There's a nice bitter finish and a crisp aftertaste. I quite enjoyed it, and noticed no skunkiness at all. A very smooth, quite drinkable brew.

The pour was excellent, a great one and one half inch head that dissapated to a creamy foam that stuck to the sides of the glass for the entire drink. The smell was very citrusy with a slight spice overtone. The taste started with a mellow hop bite followed by a sweet middle and a slight kick of hops at the end with a very smooth and refreshing finish. A very drinkable beer that I will come back to as much as possible.
